Become an involvement representative

What is an Involvement Representative?

We involve local people in the work of CWP to make our services better. We value and listen to your experiences and ideas to help make a difference.

We want to make sure that a variety of voices are heard and current experience is learned from. Our aim is to involve a variety of people who have an interest in CWP services.

Involvement representatives who have accessed services, or cared for someone who has, are also known as Lived Experience Advisors. We also have Young Advisors.

Who can be an Involvement Representative?

Anyone who has an interest in the work of CWP can get involved.

We appreciate that everyone is different and will want to have different levels of involvement with our Trust. How involved you become is completely up to you.

CWP recognises the contribution that service users and carers make to the Trust and has a policy in place to offer payment for their time.
